Myth and deity in Japan : the interplay of Kami and Buddhas by Töji Kamata( Book )

11 editions published between 2017 and 2019 in English and Japanese and held by 385 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Shinto is a tradition native to Japan that arose naturally on the eastern fringe of the Eurasian continent and was woven over many years into the fabric of people's everyday lives. When Buddhism entered the country in the sixth century, the two religions--rather than competing with or seeking to marginalize the other--coalesced, embracing many other folk deities as well to create a singular combinatory religious culture that continues to permeate Japan's cultural life today. This English translation of a book originally written in Japanese by one of the country's most knowledgeable, penetrating, and eclectic scholars of Japanese religion and spirituality presents an engaging overview of the country's religious legacy, as well as offering insights into how religion can become a force for peaceful coexistence, rather than violent extremism"--
Wasan : the fascination of traditional Japanese mathematics by Susumu Sakurai( Book )

8 editions published in 2018 in English and held by 297 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Wasan - a unique form of Japanese mathematics - was developed during the Edo period (1603-1868), a time when the entire country was isolated from the rest of the world. Mathematics was enjoyed as a form of entertainment by adults and children alike and by people of all social classes. Jinkōki, a mathematics textbook, was used at private elementary schools called terakoya and became a bestseller that could be found in every household. Furthermore, world-class works were produced by Japanese mathematicians such as Seki Takakazu and Takebe Katahiro. This book explores the beauty and fascination surrounding wasan by providing a guided tour that goes back in time over three hundred years and navigates through the mysterious and incredible world of mathematical wizardry found during the Edo period in Japan.--adapted from dust jacket
